The ELLIS unit Technion is developed as part of the Technion’s newly devised “Interdisciplinary Program for Research in Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems” that is formed by the Technion’s president to deepen the Technion’s commitment to machine learning. The program was recently approved and a budget of $1M was already established. This ELLIS unit Technion serves three main purposes: (i) creates a platform to engage and collaborate in cross faculty projects in machine learning; (ii) coordinates research efforts with the industry to benefit both the Technion and the industry in advancing the reach of machine learning (iii) establishes an international network, with Europe, that will increase the impact of machine learning, via student exchange program, visiting faculty program and holding ELLIS workshops.
